Tips and tactics

  • Use this spell if you need to run away from something. The enemy may still be able to hit you with ranged attacks, but otherwise, it can't move to attack you.
  • Consider using [Nature's Grasp] if you use this spell to run very often.
  • Invaluable in PvP against Warriors, Rogues, Hunters, and Shamans.
  • Use it for crowd control in an instance, if needed.

Notes

  • Entangling Roots' cast time may be made instant with [Nature's Swiftness].
  • One of the few crowd control spells not subject to creature type restrictions (humanoid, beast, demon, etc.). It is, however, unreliable. Any creature that is immune to nature spells, as is common among elementals, is immune to Entangling Roots.
